Inherited and Non-inherited Cardiac Disease Quality of Life

2019-09-12 02:34:41 | BioPortfolio


A prospective, longitudinal, non-comparator, non-randomized observational cohort study to assess the quality of life in adult patients affected by inherited cardiac disease (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and thoracic aortic aneurysm) who are not amenable to surgery, as well as those affected by non-inherited cardiac disease caused by radiation therapy.


While physicians and patients may be aware of the physical limitations that result from a diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) or radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD), there is little research on the impact on quality of life from the limitations imposed with these diagnosis. This study aims to address these unknowns in patients with inherited cardiac disease as well as non-inherited radiation-induced cardiac disease in first-time patients at the Cleveland Clinic. Knowledge gained from this study will provide us the ability for better management of the chronic impacts of the disease by identifying potential risk factors of low quality of life or changes in quality of life over time.

This is a prospective, longitudinal, non-comparator, non-randomized survey study describing QOL outcomes for patients with HCM, TAA, or RIHD. Patients being seen for the first time at the Cleveland Clinic for cardiac disease with no previous or scheduled surgery for HCM or TAA will electronically complete a Cardiac Quality of Life Survey at 3 time points (baseline, 3month & 9 month). The Cardiac Quality of Life Survey measures the participant's health status in five domains - global, physical ,emotional, social, and spiritual - as well as self-efficacy and resilience.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal dominant inherited form of HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY. It results from any of more than 50 mutations involving genes encoding contractile proteins such as VENTRICULAR MYOSINS; cardiac TROPONIN T; ALPHA-TROPOMYOSIN.

A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).

A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).

An autosomal recessively inherited glycogen storage disease caused by GLUCAN 1,4-ALPHA-GLUCOSIDASE deficiency. Large amounts of GLYCOGEN accumulate in the LYSOSOMES of skeletal muscle (MUSCLE, SKELETAL); HEART; LIVER; SPINAL CORD; and BRAIN. Three forms have been described: infantile, childhood, and adult. The infantile form is fatal in infancy and presents with hypotonia and a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CARDIOMYOPATHY, HYPERTROPHIC). The childhood form usually presents in the second year of life with proximal weakness and respiratory symptoms. The adult form consists of a slowly progressive proximal myopathy. (From Muscle Nerve 1995;3:S61-9; Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp73-4)

Isoforms of MYOSIN TYPE II, specifically found in the ventricular muscle of the HEART. Defects in the genes encoding ventricular myosins result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.
